I read this one a while ago, but as it has retained it's place upon my beloved bookshelves, I obviously thought enough of the stories contained within were worthy of re-reads. I've always been a fan of Egyptology. :)

A nice collection, including some stories I haven't come across anywhere else. Particularly intriguing is a travelogue by H.P. Lovecraft originally ghostwritten for Harry Houdini.

That story, along with Doyle, Haggard, Kipling, Stoker, and archaeologist Howard Carter provide a view of the mysterious Egypt which lured the English of the Victorian age. The Poe, Twain, and Bradbury provide more absurd and amusing views of the mummy myth.

The inclusion of an original Egyptian myth gives another usefu

I just finished this book and though I couldn't lengthen my genre interest in Egyptian Mythology long enough to finish all the short stories within, I found it informative, interesting, and was a bit surprised by a couple of the stories inside.

Particularly, a story ghostwritten for Harry Houdini byH.P. Lovecraft titled, Under the Pyramids aka Imprisoned With The Pharaohs, based on the real-life experience Houdini had in the Egyptian tombs. Kinda cool how he was not only frien
I liked this collection. It was actually one of the better anthologies I have read. Anthologies are really hit and miss for the most part, but I lucked out and this one was mostly hits for me. My favorite stories were:

Lost in a Pyramid, or The Mummy's Curse by Louisa May Alcott
The Demon-Possessed Princess by an Ancient Egyptian Priest
The Majestic Sphinx by Mark Twain
Smith and the Pharaohs by Sir H. Rider Haggard
The Jewel of Seven Stars by Bram Stoker

The non-fiction stories were a bit boring if you don't find lists of things you can find in tomb basically riveting read, but otherwise i felt quite happy with the choice of authors and their tales...i was quite sure i would have mummy themed nightmares by the bunch but luckily they haven't manifested yet...maybe they'll pop up sometimes later...rare finds from top notch authors will always bring geeky glee out of me so this collection has earned my respect...

A collection of short stories, some true, that engages both interest in anicent egypt and a thirst for thrills.
